REHEARSAL SCHEDULE 

REMINDER! We haven’t been able to cross check yet, but if you have not yet paid for this past weekends Allegro Camp, please do so immediately!

 

REMINDER!! 

Hello Allegro (Addam’s Family) Parents,

Last week, I had the realization that the Allegro Parent Meeting (for all parents of Addam’s Family cast members) was coming up quickly. Then the Pre-Allegro Camp snow day fiasco came along and I completely forget to send out any reminders about the meeting!

I know this parent meeting date was in the original choir calendar, but none of you knew when you received that calendar last summer whether or not your child was even going to audition, let alone, be in the Allegro Cast.

That said, my concern is that due to my lack of reminders, the meeting scheduled for last tonight would likely be very poorly attended. That is the last thing we want/need!

Therefore, we have decided to reschedule the meeting to TUESDAY, JANUARY 20th at 7PM in the MSHS Choir Room. I want to give you enough time to make room for this in your schedules so I feel like any sooner could have the same issue as having the meeting tonight.

On a side note, the Allegro Tech meeting (you know who you are) scheduled for tonight is still happening at 6pm in the choir room!

Also, it is mandatory that at least one parent/guardian attend this one and only meeting for this group! Please plan now to attend. Thanks so much! Looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting the new “Allegro” parents.

THIS IS THE ONE AVOIDS ALL SPLITS OF SECOND SOPRANOS INTO 2NDS SINGING 1ST & 2NDS SINGING ALTO (AND THE SPLITS OF BARITONES INTO BARITONES SINGING BASS AND BARITONES SINGING TENOR) NOW, ALL 2ND SOPRANOS WILL COME OUT OF THE SOPRANO ONE SECTION. AND ALL BARITONES FROM THE LOW BASS SECTION…!

THINGS WILL BE A BIT LOPSIDED WHEN SINGING IN 2PTS THIS WAY, BUT IT WILL BE LESS OVER PARTS TO TEACH/LEARN IN REHEARSAL AND LESS OF ALL THAT CRAZY SPLITTING LIKE WE DID IN THE PREVIOUS REHEARSAL.

THIS WILL ALSO BETTER MATCH UP TO THE ONLINE PRACTICE SOFTWARE!

 

A GOOD NUMBER OF YOU HAVE SWITCHED VOICE PARTS AND SEATS SO MAKE SURE TO CHECK IT OUT!

REHEARSAL SCHEDULE and ALLEGRO CAMP THIS WEEKEND! 

REMINDER! We haven’t been able to cross check yet, but if you have not yet paid for this past weekends Allegro Camp, please do so immediately!

 

REMINDER!! 

Hello Allegro (Addam’s Family) Parents,

Last week, I had the realization that the Allegro Parent Meeting (for all parents of Addam’s Family cast members) was coming up quickly. Then the Pre-Allegro Camp snow day fiasco came along and I completely forget to send out any reminders about the meeting!

I know this parent meeting date was in the original choir calendar, but none of you knew when you received that calendar last summer whether or not your child was even going to audition, let alone, be in the Allegro Cast.

That said, my concern is that due to my lack of reminders, the meeting scheduled for last tonight would likely be very poorly attended. That is the last thing we want/need!

Therefore, we have decided to reschedule the meeting to TUESDAY, JANUARY 20th at 7PM in the MSHS Choir Room. I want to give you enough time to make room for this in your schedules so I feel like any sooner could have the same issue as having the meeting tonight.

On a side note, the Allegro Tech meeting (you know who you are) scheduled for tonight is still happening at 6pm in the choir room!

Also, it is mandatory that at least one parent/guardian attend this one and only meeting for this group! Please plan now to attend. Thanks so much! Looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting the new “Allegro” parents.
